The key to a successful move is to prepare weeks or months in advance and slowly work your way to the move date. There are several essential items that you need to consider such as:


●        Renting a moving truck

●        Hiring a moving crew

●        Establishing a budget

●        Developing a timeline for your move

●        Gathering your supplies

●        Communicating with all relevant entities

Below are some steps for preparing your upcoming relocation:

1. Establish a Budget

Before you begin moving, you may want to establish a budget to prioritize your expenses and keep your costs low. Your budget may include:


●        Truck rental fees

●        Packing supplies

●        Cleaning services

●        Travel expenses

●        Deposits, utilities, and moving-in fees

2. Reserve the Moving Truck

Regardless of when you are moving, you should book your moving truck and/or crew at least two months before your desired moving date. Moving services are in high demand, so most reputable moving companies will be booked months in advance.


If you wait too long and start looking for a relocation partner with only a month or so left before your move, you’ll have a limited choice of movers and will likely have to settle for lesser quality at a higher price.  How far in advance you book the truck depends on the move date, the size of the truck, and the distance you are traveling.

3. Hire a Moving Team

Ed’s Moving & Storage can do everything related to your move, including packing your boxes, loading and unloading your household items and unpacking your belongings at your new house. Our local and long-distance movers can ensure that all moving is completed safely and efficiently.


The three main benefits include:

2.      They do the heavy lifting

3.      They ensure your belongings

4. Put Your Move on a Schedule

We suggest that you begin strategically planning and executing your move at least eight weeks out. If you want a good starting point, then check out our moving checklist online.


Here you’ll find a week-by-week guide that will lead you through the process from the time you start packing until the day of the move. By starting early, you’ll relieve yourself of a lot of stress and last minute decision-making.
